Søren Thilo Funder will present recent works, highlighting notions of authoritative and collective history writing. Working with narrative constructions that negotiate between fiction and reality, references to history and recollection appear throughout Funder’s work.
Christian Falsnaes will speak about the role of audience participation in his work. Falsnaes employs a multitude of visual forms, including painting, video, music and dance, to develop situations with the active participation of the audience. Recurrent themes are the relations between the individual and the group, and those between the artist and his audience.
This program is supported, in part, by The Beckett Foundation, Danish Arts Foundation, Den Hielmstierne-Rosencroneske Stiftelse, Knud Højgaards Fond, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
